The risks of a bad hire in public safety are enormous. A single “bad apple” can destroy your department’s reputation, expose you to lawsuits and waste thousands of dollars in costs spent on recruiting and training.
And yet in many law enforcement agencies, jails and fire departments, the background investigation process is inadequate. In this webinar, Lexipol’s Gordon Graham and OPENonline’s Rich Henderson will explore the need for public safety agencies to perform background checks, what such investigations should entail, and strategies for conducting an effective pre-employment screening.
- Real-world examples of how the lack of a comprehensive background investigation exposes public safety agencies to risk
- Challenges public safety agencies face when conducting background investigations
- Key components to include in a background investigation
